The 27 Design team was commissioned to create a promo for a local event.
As a full-time animator, I was assigned half of scenes.
Also, I was go-to expression nerd in the team, so I figured out how to build the wave rig.
Styleframes designed by Yi-Wei Wu
Shots I animated below
Motion Test - Wave
The video below shows how I animated the wave.
The wave design was originally created by p5.js (JavaScript).
I needed to replicate it in After Effects.

Here's how I solved it.

I used the free wave rig created by Ordinary Folk.
Tweaked the expressions myself to get basic wave shapes.

Then I used a plugin called Volna 2.
It's like the BLEND tool in Adobe Illustrator.
It blends two masks into a new shape with multiple strokes.
